Do the Dutch finally get it?

Just a day before the stunning acquittal of Geert Wilders in The Netherlands on charges of defamation of Islam, it seems that Dutch politicians finally figured out what anyone with half a brain can see:  allowing foreign cultures to flourish in your country and allowing followers of those cultures to opt out of participating in that country’s shared culture (and obeying its laws) is a recipe for disaster.

Netherlands abandoning multiculturalism

The article notes that a new integration bill will BAN the wearing of face-covering burqas as of January 1, 2013.   The government will also end subsidies to Muslim immigrants and will outlaw forced marriages.

‘Bout damn time.

If the Dutch are finally getting a clue, what are the odds that reason will see the light in this country?  We can only hope.

Delta Air Lines: Bah!

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

– Wiccapundit

Frequent readers of this little blog know that I am an airplane nut.  Ever since I was a kid, I have loved everything aviation-related.  Even as an adult flying commercial, I would waffle over taking the aisle seat for comfort, or the window seat so I could stare out the window.  It has taken the particular genius combination of airline stupidity (charge for checked bags and everything else they can suck out of you) and government unpleasantness (TSA stands for “They Suck Ass”) to make someone who loves to fly HATE to get on an airplane.

Add this one to the long-as-my-Johnson list of reasons I won’t set foot on a commercial flight, particularly not one of Delta’s:

Delta Partners With Saudi Arabian Airlines; Jews Now Can’t Fly

Jews and Israelis, or passengers carrying any non-Islamic article of faith, will not be able to fly Delta Air Lines flights from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia under Delta’s new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines. (emphasis added)

I suppose that a witch wearing a pentagram and flying on Delta to Saudi Arabia would be right out.  Like I’d ever be caught dead entering a backwards, barbaric, Stone Age sandpit like that.

Or like I’d be caught dead EVER taking another flight on Delta.

(h/t to AoSHQ, of course)
